Transcript
How it works:
On the reverse of this sheet are four constellations, all of which can be seen on summer
nights in Colorado. Each constellation has five stars. For every book read, fill in one star.
Each time you complete a constellation, bring this sheet to the teenseen to receive a prize
and a raffle ticket for a drawing at the end of the program. Once you have completed all
four constellations (20 books read), you will receive a prize, a raffle ticket, and a ticket to
attend the end of the Summer Reading Program pool party!
Happy Reading—and star-gazing!
Vega
Delphinus (The Dolphin)
This little constellation actually looks
like what it’s called. Once the sky is
real dark, look east-southeast to identify the leaping dolphin!
Lyra (The Lyre)
This constellation represents a lyre, or ancient
harp. Although it is small, Lyra is easy to find,
because it contains the brightest star in the high
eastern sky, called Vega! Once you have found
Vega, look for a faint parallelogram to the lower
right of it. Together, these five stars make up Lyra.
Cassiopeia (The Queen)
This constellation is easy to find! Look for the
big “W” in the northern sky. The “W” represents the outline of Queen Cassiopeia tied to
a throne. According to the Greek myth, this
was her punishment for being extremely
vain. Depending on the time of night and the
season, the “W” will be right-side up, on one
of its sides, or hanging upside-down.
Cepheus (The King)
This constellation looks more like a
house than a king! Nevertheless, these
stars represent King Cepheus who
begged to be placed alongside his wife
(Cassiopeia), because, despite her
enormous ego, he remained deeply in
love with her. Look for Cepheus in the
northern sky, near Cassiopeia. Keep in
mind that he might be upside-down!
